"Flora's Secret" as written by Nicky Ryan, Roma Ryan and Eithne Ni Bhraonain....
Lovers in the long grass
Look above them
Only they can see
Where the clouds are going
Only to discover
Dust and sunlight
Ever make the sky so blue

Afternoon is hazy
River flowing
All around the sounds
Moving closer to them
Telling them the story
Told by Flora
Dreams they never knew

Silver willows
Tears from Persia
Those who come
From a far-off island
Winter Chanterelle lies
Under cover
Glory-of-the-sun in blue

Some they know as passion
Some as freedom
Some they know as love
And the way it leaves them
Summer snowflake
For a season
When the sky above is blue
When the sky above is blue

Lying in the long grass
Close beside her
Giving her the name
Of the one the moon loves
This will be the day she
Will remember
When she knew his heart
Was
Loving in the long grass
Close beside her
Whispering of love
And the way it leaves them
Lying in the long grass
In the sunlight
They believe it's true love
And from all around them
Flora's secret
Telling them of love
And the way it breathes
And
Looking up from eyes of
Amaranthine
They can see the sky
Is blue
Knowing that their love
Is true
Dreams they never knew
And the sky above is blue

    General Comment"this amazing thing full of happiness" you describe is sex, in the days when it was discovered by lovers, and not sold cheaply through the media. They feel they are the only two in the world who have discovered this beautiful feeling and so refer to it as a secret. Maybe Flora is some kind of goddess?

    General Commentyes, flora is a roman goddess of spring. she had a festival that was celabrated in late april or early may. the festival was to celebrate the circle of life (and strongly reminds me of beltane). this song is my favorite of hers!

    General CommentI think Myoria ended up getting dumped.

    But either way, I like to subscribe to her first theory.

    And either way also, what this song really means to ME: It just describes a really lovely day in which two lovers decided to go hang out, in the pretty weather, in a field full of flowers for a day. :] The fact that Flora is the Roman Goddess of spring kind of helps my interpretation along a bit.
